I think what's going on in Guantanamo Bay

but it has given impetus and excuses to potential terrorists
to lash out at our country and justify their despicable acts.
- Jimmy Carter

and the rest is going to go on and on in Iraq.

We will never win this war until we understand the
effect that Guantanamo Bay has had on the overall war effort.

dealing with are not common criminals.
We're going to keep them - keep you safe from them.
- Lindsey Graham

Guantanamo allows us to secure dangerous detainees
without the risk of escape,

information on how best to proceed in the war against
terror and prevent future attacks.

If people around the world knew how well people at
Guantanamo Bay are treating prisoners,
they would not fall prey to the accusations that some
in our Chamber are making.
They are all receiving judicial review.

The Democrats in the Senate adopted a resolution,
an amendment, saying that there should be no Guantanamo

where they belong.

Many of the vicious criminals held there have been
caught on the battlefield fighting against American

require the military to move them elsewhere.

If anyone has it rough at Guantanamo,
it is the guards.

We know where your wife is, your children,
and we are going to kill them.
- Robin Hayes

Let me say this: I believe closing Guantanamo is in
our Nation's national security interest.
Guantanamo is used not only by al-Qaida,

and it is fanning the flames of anti-Americanism around the world.

trial in Downtown Manhattan.

the military, pretty much dismiss complaints by the
detainees because they say that they're all created

have already guaranteed radical Muslims quite enough
ammunition to kill Americans for the next century,
even if Guantanamo did not exist.

the people who designed this here program and who implement
it are the same people who are overseeing and helping
in the interrogations of detainees in places like Guantanamo.

Farewell My Friend
It was beautiful as long as it lasted
The journey of my life.
I have no regrets whatsoever
save the pain I'll leave behind.
Those dear hearts who love and care...
And the strings pulling at the heart and soul...
The strong arms that held me up
When my own strength let me down.
At every turning of my life
I came across good friends,
Friends who stood by me,
Even when the time raced me by.
Farewell, farewell my friends
I smile and bid you goodbye.
No, shed no tears for I need them not
All I need is your smile.
If you feel sad do think of me
for that's what I'll like
when you live in the hearts
of those you love, remember then
you never die.
- Gitanjali Ghei
